A good team is crucial when establishing a drone show company. At least, you need:
1) Operator: someone who knows all the ins and outs of working with Drone Show Software and all the necessary hardware
2) Drone Pilot / Technician: a person responsible for drones, their condition, batteries, and configuration, and being also able to pilot a drone manually and assist the Operator with the software when needed.
3) Creative Mind: a person having a big picture in mind of how the show should look like, and being able to pitch the idea to customers.
It will also be beneficial to engage an animation software professional. However, this is not a must-do, since animation can be ordered from a third party.
